or maybe someone has  soda blaster/ultrasopnic setup, which is i think how its done

I have been reading good things (and seeing some great 'after' photos) about water/hydro blasting parts like carburettors and manifolds lately.

I found the website for this business in Dandenong for you to have a look at;
http://www.thehydroblastshop.com.au/

Hopefully someone else in Melbourne has had something cleaned this way and can give a personal recommendation.

ended up using hydro in sandringham , cost $170 with the ultrasonic
does anyone know  if the throttle shaft is meant to be zinc coated or is it just chrome plated?
the joiner bolt b/ween the bowl and the main body i  think is meant to be zinc plated

According to the Z Therapy website;
"The British and Nissan used cast brass shafts.  The Japanese chrome plated them, which helped them last 30 years or so."

The diagram on their page;

-also states that "Every single carb through our doors has worn shafts - see the brass?"
The diagram shows the stainless steel replacement shafts that they make.

Can you post a photo or two of how your carbs turned out?
